PPUA 5235: Participatory Community Planning Methods
Seminar - 4 credits
- Examines the role of the participant as a fundamental aspect of most urban planning processes.
- Studies the range of strategies that contemporary urban planners employ to ensure buy-in from a project’s stakeholders.
- Utilizes historical precedents to locate gaps between the “plan then present” model used in many planning processes and "co-design" processes that seek to redefine the role of the “technical expert.” Offers students an opportunity to develop a toolkit of engagement methods from varied models of participatory planning processes.
- Engages in project-based work that enlists these methods.
- Assesses the efficacy of these methods when identifying the right stakeholders and when determining when/how to bring stakeholder participation into a planning process.
